Why do Babies Cry?

New parents often find that their babies cry often. The problem is not that the parent is doing something wrong, at least not intentionally. Babies cry often and they cry loud. The good news is that after a while, you will learn what each type of cry means. Soft cries, loud cries, cries that mean the baby is in pain or those that mean he is hungry all sound just a bit different. For parents, this learning curve requires some attention paid to it, but once in place, you will see improvement in your ability to react to that cry.

As you care for your baby, keep these reasons for crying in mind. Chances are good that your child is crying for one of these reasons.

He or she is hungry.

Most babies will cry to let you know that they are hungry. It is often necessary to get to this cry before it worsens. The hungrier they get, the louder the cry and often, the more difficult they are to feed.

She is dirty.

Babies do not like to be wet and they do not like squishy stuff either.

If they are uncomfortable in this area, chances are good they will be crying, and crying a lot because of it.

She is uncomfortable

Most often, babies are happy to go lucky with whatever you do with them. However, they do not like to be cold and they do not like to be hot either. Try to keep their clothing levels right to soothe this problem. Dressing in layers is helpful. 

She wants comfort.

Many times, children will cry because they want to be held. They may not be able to express this feeling any other way. They do not need food or a diaper change, but they do want to be held and comforted.

She does not feel good. 

Oftentimes, children will cry when something is bothering them, such
as their tummy. They cannot tell you that their tummy hurts so this is often a guess you will
have to make until you can spot the type of cry associated with a child that does not feel good.

Babies can cry for many reasons. What is important is to understand the cry so that you can react to it appropriately and help the child to improve his or her overall happiness.
